Sonic Circuits VIII

One Sheet: 

John Von Seggern (Hong Kong) — Hyper Erhu; the traditional 2-string fiddle enters the Digitalcutuplounge;

Katherine Gordon (New York, NY) — Holding Patterns; slowly encircling unknown destinations;

Francis Dhomont (Montreal, Quebec) — En Cuerdas; venerated master of electroacoustics turns his hand to the guitar;

Preston Wright (St. Paul, MN) — Carpenter Ant Blues; a storm of beats to bring the house down;

Malte Steiner (Hamburg, Germany) — Draht Welt; not an arc-welder being applied to a piano string, but close;

Philip Mantione (New York, NY) — Sinusoidal Tendencies; a searing study in form and color;

Michael Kosch (New York, NY) — Colatudes; next to the real thing, these games with Coke bottles will make you smile;

David Jaggard (Paris, France) — Mary & Ann; count the subclauses in this Samuel Becket tale deconstructed in antiquated brilliance;

Antun Blazinovic (Zagreb, Croatia) — Elements; Drum and Bass joins wails and oboes in a time of war. 

Reviews: 

The nine sonic alchemists here brew up bizarre and unique fantasies, finding that studio doors can lead to other worlds.
